Storyline

Building on the terror of The Haunting in Connecticut, this tale traces a young family's nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick moves his wife Lisa and daughter Heidi to a historic home in Georgia, they quickly discover they are not the house's only inhabitants. Joined by Lisa's free-spirited sister, Joyce, the family soon comes face-to-face with a mystery born of a deranged desire ... a haunting secret rising from underground and threatening to bring down anyone in its path.

'THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2: GHOSTS OF GEORGIA': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Sequel to the 2009 supernatural horror film 'THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT' about a family haunted by supernatural beings when it moves into a house in upstate Connecticut (due to the son's health issues) and later finds out it was a former funeral parlor, where a young man also communicated with the dead. This sequel centers on another family who moves into a historical home in Georgia and is haunted by deceased slaves freed by a former taxidermist that lived there. This installment stars Abigail Spencer, Chad Michael Murray and Katee Sackhoff ('Starbuck' of 'BATTLESTAR GALACTICA' fame). It was directed by first time director Tom Elkins and written by TV writer/producer David Coggeshall. Both films are supposed to be based on true events (or at least on the stories of actual families). Neither film is that scary or memorable but I'd say the original was a little more effective than this one.

Spencer plays Lisa Wyrick and Murray plays her husband Andy, a couple that moves into a historical home in Georgia with their daughter Heidi (Emily Alyn Lind). They're later joined by Lisa's sister Joyce (Sackhoff), despite Andy's discontent of the idea. It's revealed early on that both Lisa and Joyce can see beings from beyond the grave and they're now learning that young Heidi has this ability as well. Heidi keeps seeing the ghost of an older gentleman who used to live there named Mr. Gordy (Grant James). Several other spirits become noticeable to all three women as well as they learn that a taxidermist freed slaves there and hid them underground (as well as much more).

The movie has surprisingly good production values for a limited release film like this and given the $9 million budget it was able to pull off some pretty good effects and imagery as well. The cast is all pretty to look at and decent in the film and the characters are all likable as well. The story is really routine and kind of boring though and the filmmakers acting like it's based on fact kind of cheapens the whole movie experience in my opinion. It is a step down from the original but I'll still probably watch the third film planned in the series: 'THE HAUNTING IN NEW YORK'.
